Must be used with inkjet printers Weathrproof Labels - Use these full sheet labels in an inkjet printer to create waterproof labels! Simply print on it like you would any full sheet of labels, cut into individual labels with a pair of scissors or paper cutter and voila! An extremely durable material with one of the strongest adhesives offered. This white vinyl material is inkjet printable and is designed to repel water. May be exposed to the elements, but saturation is not recommended. These labels are also oil proof (which means that your labels won't run if you spill FO or EO on your labels). These labels are specially treated to be water resistant once printed on with a laser printer. Vinyl is often used for inkjet printing and polyester is used for laser printing. While we agree that polyester laser labels are waterproof once printed, we recognize that most of us do not have access to a laser printer. HOW THEY WORK: Water-resistant (also referred to as waterproof) vinyl label sheets manufactured for an inkjet printer are top-coated with a substance that "locks in the ink". Therefore, it is important to achieve a balanced ratio between ink used and top-coating available for locking. If too much ink is used not enough top-coating is available to lock it down, you will see some bleeding when in contact with water. There are 3 things that can be done to solve this issue, leaving you with a truley WATER-PROOF label: Adjust your Printer Settings most printers have advanced printer settings you can adjust for the different media types you might put through the printer. When you hit print, find the "paper type" or "media type" box and select premium paper (or experiment with the many media settings for best results) You can also turn down your ink volume, too much ink being used can cause bleeding to occur. When you hit 'print', select the advanced features (you may have to look under different tabs to find this, it's different on every printer) -under the 'advanced settings, you should be able to turn down your ink volume resulting is a better-quality waterproof label. Rinsing If you are printing using heavy graphics, rinsing of your waterproof label sheet might be required. Print as usual and let the ink set for several minutes. Then, simply rinse sheet under cold water to wash away any "unlocked" ink that is sitting above the top-coating - this will leave you with a perfectly bleed-free and waterproof label sheet. Sealing You can also add your own top-coating, giving it a bit of extra protection. This is especially useful if you will be using the waterproof label as a bumper sticker or some other outdoor use label. It is also useful when you are needing waterproof labels for your line of bath and body products. Try a photo short (matte finish) spray on top-coating. It will leave a chemical smell, however, if you leave your waterproof labels sit in open air for 48 hours, we have found the chemical smell to dissapate and that it will not interfere with your scented bath and body products.
